NEW YORK - Woody Allen called Dylan Farrow's allegations of child molestation "untrue and disgraceful" a day after Farrow renewed claims dating back to Allen's tempestuous relationship with actress Mia Farrow in the early 1990s.
The movie director's publicist Leslee Dart said Sunday that Allen has read Dylan Farrow's open-letter, published online by The New York Times, claiming she was sexually assaulted by her then adoptive father as a 7-year-old.
"Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful," said Dart.
Dylan Farrow claimed that in 1992 at the family's Connecticut home, Allen led her to a "dim, closet-like attic" and "then he sexually assaulted me." Farrow didn't specify Allen's actions, but described other abusive behavior.
